Naomi doesn't determine the winner, the client does, so whether Naomi wanted Zilin to win or not is irrelevant.

Naomi misinterpreted it as if you're black and not American, which means you're a non-American African like Khadisha, you will not win. And it was her blowing up this misunderstanding in front of Frederic Fekkai that caused Kira so much trauma.

We don't know what Kira said to Afiya, but Afiya said Kira said a black girl would not win. It is also possible Afiya misinterpreted it since even Naomi misinterpreted Kira's sentence.

As for how Naomi treated her, I agree it didn't seem much different than how she treated the others, but I felt like that didn't particularly matter. I think it was already too late. Naomi humiliated and ruined all of Kira's chances to win by shaming her in front of the client over a misunderstanding, so Kira was already defeated then. Continuing or not in the competition wouldn't have mattered either way.

But I agree, the way Kira went about her elimination speech was never going to work. Anne said so herself that the mentors were only there to guide them. That blaming speech was just another nail in the proverbial coffin.

And this is just an opinion and not in any way stating that's how Naomi is, but I doubt she actually cared about Kira. Ever since the Face US 1 Naomi has taken every opportunity she can get to cause drama and be the center of attention on all version of the Face. I felt like Naomi rushing into the elimination room was more for Naomi to be in the center of the action than it was about Kira.
i mean either way she still can't win, with that interpretation now she's implying Naomi is totally biased, prejudiced, and expressing favoritism to blacks and American girls for the win.

either way that comment was going to have things end badly. there's no escaping or justifying it - lost in translation or not, Naomi's hot head or not

Yeah, I basically mean to say that neither of them are blameless in the matter. Naomi, for taking advantage of an opportunity to not only clear her name but also to cause more drama (at the possible expense of Kira's modeling career, but it seems Kira's career has gotten better now even though I doubt she will ever be booked by Fekkai ever). And of course, Kira for being ignorant enough to say the things she said, and even blame her mentor for it as well.

But of course, the show is also highly edited, so there may be more to this than meets the eye. Perhaps Kira said worse (or better), or perhaps Naomi treated her worse (or better).

It's not my thing to criticize and to be very negative but this season of the face us is really bad. Nothing good at all. The mentors are really boring, sometimes too theatrical ( i love Naomi but please ). Lydia is ...useless. Coco Rocha was better. I like Anne V though. She's a great model and quiet a great mentor. I can't bare Nigel Baker anymore. His voice, his attitude. Just horrible. Now, the models - if we can call these girls "models". They're so girl next door that they become dull. I find some of girls...ugly. Seriously, i don't see which girl can win and have a serious career in fashion industry.

And i really don't understand why this season of the face is so so bad when you have on the other side the face australia which is absolutely marvelous. The mentors are great ( Naomi is a bit less theatrical thanks god), the models are really beautiful with amazing figures. The test shoot /campaign challenge are great. Even the prizes are better : Pamela rolland shopping bag for the us version and givenchy antigona bag for the Australia version, alex and ani for the us and marie claire editorial for the Australia version !!!

Naomi's screaming and slamming the floor during the video shoot was absolutely ridiculous.

The Face US needs a serious overhaul. Where is the FASHION? This is why it's not so good anymore.

The shoots are dull and way too over the top and unrealistic. Seriously, when do models ever have to walk on an effing dinning table, set up their own window in a store, or produce a commercial themselves? Answer: never! Real models do fashion jobs, they don't multi task as stylists, TV producers, set designers, make up artists, etc. ANTM took this "creative" approach and that's why it sucked. I miss it when last season the mentors would teach them lessons, such as how to conduct and interview, posing 101, runway walking etc It was more helpful and fashion oriented.

Also, did they get these "models" from a suburban mall?! Holy crap, not a single girl looks like she could be a legit model. Last season was much better in terms of modeling potential.

The last nail in the coffin are the mentors and Nigel. Anne is great, she's done her work, she's a legit model, and she's great at mentoring. Lydia is SO filler and clearly not familiar with modeling. Naomi is great, but needs to tone down the arguments. Her fighting with clients now (Alex and Ani) is not a good look and makes the contest look like a joke. Professionalism please! Nigel needs to GOOOO too. He's so useless, and I can't handle those voiceovers anymore.

Regardless, this show has descended into the "Naomi" show and her histrionics makes it painful to watch. I felt sorry for Kira I don't think she was racist just putting her foot in her mouth, not vindictive, just ignorant and misinformed. As everyone stated this is a replica of ANTM and it shouldn't be, the competition should be less volatile and more about the process of choosing the next winner, such as The Voice show that its based upon.

the face Australia is just miles better than the American, the same can be said for the UK version as well. The girls just have it. I also think due to the failure of ANTM a lot of american agencies are reluctant to put their girls on a reality show.

Cheyenne has got some fire in her though There isnt one team on the Australia version that i feel has the best girls. I think everyone has a great balance

The Face US Season 2 looks so horrible, none of the girls are standout (except Isabella who sent home from the very first episode), the campaign is just uber tacky and Nigel Barker's voice is quite bothering me. He needs to articulate his words better. I kinda like Anne V's appearance here. She's got the competitive spirit unlike Lydia.

I just watched the first episode of the Australian version. So much better than the US and I agree with marsnoop2, he's charming and cute, well compared to Nigel.
